. it is a different tlesh hold than what the obama administration has laid out when you look carefully at what the president said at the general assembly, the most recent remarks on iran's nuclear program, he said the united states will not allow iran to have a nuclear bomb. i am paraphrasing to a certain degree. the word capability was not there. you did hear it from the israeli prime minister and today you're hearing it once again from mitt romney. mitt romney has been vague. he has gone back and forth on the issue of capability and sometimes he says it and sometimes he doesn't. today he is very cat goral in saying in a romney administration iran would not be able to have that capability of building a nuclear bomb which is significantly different than the threshold laid out by the president. >> and let's talk about syria which has been somewhat of a thorn in the side of this current sitting american president, and mr. romney, governor romney's view of syria, there was something in these prepared remarks that we excerpted that stood out to me and i want to get your take on it. he said or he w
in recess, the first debate focused on the economy, the question of whether the obama administration intentionally misled the american people has not yet been answered. is it fair game politically and will it affect anybody vote? we continue with christine o'donnell and bill kristol and congressman forbes. are people grasping the significance of benghazi gate and paying attention to it or is the economy so paramount that it overshadows everything else? >> in virginia, a different question. not so much whether or not the administration was misleading but why we didn't provide the security that we needed for the individuals that we had there representing the united states the. secondly, it is the big concern with when they talk about how aggressive they pursued this waiting 23 days before they even get in there and get information when tv networks had the information before the united states government. but the big question we are hearing people asking across virginia is why is this an administration that is so willing to cut national defense in the united states but they won't put on
ambassador. well, obviously that's what the obama administration is doing. >> you have a lot of fodder for your weekend show, so we'll be watching it and also for suzanne malveaux's shows which is up and coming. thank you for taking the time to be on our show today. fareed zakaria, and as i sign off, i do want remind you "newsroom international" starts right now with suzanne malveaux. >> kuhn dem the president for leading from behind, declaring it is time to change -- criticized the obama administration for not having an overall strategy in this region, and here's how he summed it up. the know the president hopes for a safer, freer, aligned middle east with us. i share this hope, but hope is not a strategy. we can't support our friends and defeat our enemies in the middle east when our words are not backed up by deeds. >> now, wolf, we know he was referring to a lot of the protests around in the region, and even the killing of the u.s. ambassador in benghazi, libya, but when you listen to what he is saying here, how much of it do you think is about a failed strategy or what is simply o
unraveling of the obama administration's foreign policy. >> this was a terrorist attack on 9/11 that took the life of a united states ambassador, an american ambassador. this is serious stuff. americans deserve the truth on what happened. >> greta: so u.n. ambassador rice resign? earlier former secretary of defense donald rumsfeld went on the secretary. mr. secretary, nice to see you, sir. >> thank you. good to be with you. >> greta: there are many calls for ambassador to the u.n., susan rice, to resign. she has the backup of the secretary of state and the president, but there are calls for her to resign after going on all the talk shows and pushing this youtube video as the reason, the cause. your thoughts, sir? >> well, that's really up to the president and ambassador as far as i'm concerned. i think that the president can nominate who he wants, and the senate confirmed her. and she's the ambassador while she's there. i watched the presentation. and i thought it was amazing that someone in her position would go on with that degree of certainty, that fast, and that authoritiatively and b
to talk what they strive to do is paint a contrast betwee them and the obama administration. the contra becom p thr posturg. hoare we going to approh foreign policy differently? the posture is that obama's foreign policy is lead from behind, i think mitt romney is really lean forward. we're trying to use our influence in the middle east to -- but really we're trying to use our influence in the region to get the outcomes we want in order to shape the policies that we want, in order to receive the outcomes that we want in the middle east. >> let's be honest, posturing is what we've got here. was his speech heavy on detail or light on detail? >> i'm stealing this from someone on twitter who said the difference between romney and obama on foreign policy is romney says speak louder but carry the same stick. sort of teddy roosevelt line. what's striking in the speech is overall the differences between romney and obama on foreign policy are not actually that great. it's about how do we deal with the syrian rebels and romney's more forthright but still hedging about whether we're going to arm t
-aircraft and anti-armor. >> rose: that's a distinction from the obama administration according to the -- >> right. i think the nuclear weapons capability line with iran. that seems to be different because the president's always talked about we're not going to contain an iran with nuclear weapons. mr. romney seems to be saying we're not even prepared to get that close. obviously the devil's in the details. >> rose: so governor romney's red line may be earlier than president obama's red line. >> exactly right. i actually thought one other thing was interesting which is he talked about our relationship with most of the arab countries. the egypts and others, the libyas. what he essentially laid out was called a conditional foreign policy. essentially saying, look, the era where we gave aid to you all and you act as you see fit is over. we will continue to work with you but only so long as you meet us halfway, whether it's the way you treat women, girls and minorities, your foreign policy more broadly against israel and terrorism. i think that's an important statement and one that people in both parties
states" was a very interesting and important one. i think that the obama administration would say, look, if there was no daylight the israelis might well have taken military action by now and the u.s. would be sucked into it. the u.s. would have to join it. so there has been daylight, but the daylight in the obama administration's view has been intended to say to the israelis, "look, we're not at the point yet where they're about to get a bomb, there are other possibilities, including more sanctions and more sabotage." >> rose: prime minister netanyahu would welcome this speech? >> by and large yes. but there were some interesting statements that i'm not sure if the word would be "welcome." when governor romney talked about a two-state solution in the middle east and talked about a prosperous and secure independent palestinian state, that was interesting to me because given some of his previous comments people may have wondered whether he represented something of a departure and that to me was his way of saying look, i'm in the mainstream on important issues, i'm in the mainstream on th
? >> he was referring to what he called the weak reaction from the obama administration to the uprising, if you will, in iran, a couple of years ago, when there were protests. people were angry and the u.s. was on the sidelines, the president did not directly speak out and the explanation that the administration at the time gave was that the opposition didn't want this to appear to be the opposition to the ayatollahs, standing up in iran, with the backing of united states. that could have been counterproductive. as a result, the obama administration was pretty silent. at the time now where romney is going after him on that, i think there were a few areas where there were some significant differences, but on the whole, after you get through some of the angry rhetoric, there is a lot of agreement between obama and romney, one area of disagreement on arming the syrian rebels. another area of disagreement, how far will iran be able to go in its nuclear weapons capability, the capability of developing a bomb as opposed to actually having a bomb. and the third was on russia. he twice in a spe
cycle. you can see it live at 8:30 eastern, on c-span 2. today, and look at the obama administration's need to the auto industry. we hear from the former lead adviser on the auto industry, steve radner. that will be live on c-span 3. >> c-span's campaign 2012, provides live coverage of all the debates. it is the only place you can see behind the scenes sights and sounds, before and after the debates. each question is available as a separate clip. reid streaming tweaks -- tweets . good to see c-span.org/debates. >> the vice-presidential debate is this thursday night. coming up live today, "washington journal." at 10:00 a.m., senator schumer explains how democrats should approach tax reform legislation. at 5:00 p.m. eastern, president obama campaigns at ohio university in columbus. all this month and until election day, c-span is a new live house and senate debates from around the country. tonight we are in western tonight we are in western virginia
obama and this administration is trying to get as many americans as possible dependent on government so the democrats can stay in power in perpetuity. the reason i think that is failing is even those americans, if you break down that 47%, there is a significant chunk of people who paid into social security their entire life. that is very different from being dependent on welfare. that is a critical safety net our society has counted on that we need to insure remain strong for generations to come. even those who are receiving welfare right now, most americans do not want to stay dependent on government. they want to work for the american dream. they want to work to provide for themselves and their families. i think that is why the obama administration's objective is essentially using bread and circuses to make as many people as possible dependent on government, to keep voting democratic, is not succeeding. americans want to stand on their own feet. >> that is the craziest thing i ever heard of my life. you are accusing the president of united states of using a government program to manip
have been foreclosed on during the bush administration, not the obama administration. i would love to talk about facts, but maybe you're just a little bit disingenuous on your backs. -- on your facts. guest: the word liar is a harsh word. we talked about trying to find commonality here. what i will say about it romney, having been around him a great deal, is a man of great faith and strong family and strong family values. if given the opportunity, i know he will leave the country with honesty and integrity. we might disagree with his policies. i disagree with the president and certainly some of his policies, but i certainly try not to question his motives or goals or why he does what he does. i would hope the voters would hope both sides can return stability to this process, and maybe not to be quite as divided. but fight, argue, in debate, but i hope it is fair at the end of the day and able to move forward as a country. host: republican on the line. supporter of mitt romney. -- robert hagan from ohio and jay hottinger, thank you for joining us. a month not to go. we're in early v
that they ought to be focusing on, the obama administration? >> well they have been and we know from scott rasmussen today that the consumer confidence over the weekend shot up and boom, the president's ratings have gone up overnight since yesterday they've gone up because of that jobs number. >> yeah, that is huge. i think the president will use that. joe biden will use it in the debate. but ultimately the president believes he will win with negative because he doesn't have is a record to run on or defend. dagen: does mitt romney need to sit back and hope the president just makes some huge error at this point? >> i think he's got to keep doing what he's been doing which is to be as john said positive on the campaign trail, dagen, but also make it clear there's an alternative approach to failed policies. dagen: how do you think wednesday shakes out? what are the odds you putting on biden making a huge gaffe because that's the reason people will watch frankly. >> better than even odds that he will say something that he shouldn't say that will be a news item. and i think seriously i think th
the obama administration. so, what could a romney presidency do differently than what we have witnessed? >> well, you know, there's a good argument that much of this will be political rhetoric. it clearly no one thinks that employing convention power against iranian nuclear facilities is a way to move forward. nobody want it is israelis to attack with conventional military power at this time. and by the way, i think the iranians are going nuclear regardless of the stranglehold on them. governor romney's in a tenuous position. he won't want to provide a clear alternative. the american people won't vote for a war. >> all right. so one thing i think a lot of people will remember if they've seen the now infamous secret tape. 47% remark in florida where mitt romney did discuss the current situation in the middle east and the wording he used in reference to that saying, we just have to live with certain things that are going on there. the cycle of violence that we have been seeing. now calling for beginning anew. kind of an etch-a-sketch moment for the foreign policy initiative, the leadershi
the obama administration has stepped up drone astacks. u.s. officials say the aerial strikes are an effective strategy and have killed hundreds of militants that fueled the insurgency across the border in afghanistan. washington also insists civilian casualties are rare. members of code pink say they held fundraisers in the u.s. to pay their way over here and got close to pakistan's tribal region, about an hour away. this is a place many u.s. government and military officials never dare step in. pakistani authorities said they had to stop them for their own safety. even so, code pink not done making nose against the u.s. drones and planning on more protests this week in pakistan. reza saya, cnn, islam bad. >>> the spacex rocket blasted off from cape canaveral last night launching the first commercial flight to the international space station. the unmanned capsule is on its way after separating from the rocket. dragon is carrying 1,000 pounds of cargo and this is the first of a dozen nasa contracted flights to resupply the space station. talk about launching a big one, new orl

differences between what a romney ad administration would look like and another four years of president obama might look like? >> even for a person who doesn't think badly of president obama's foreign policy i think it was useful because it reinforced america's need for engagement in the world. general scales was correct, there is military aspect to that which i personally may not consider necessary but i welcome the general tone of more engagement even if i don't think defense spending going up and. tired of wars. tired of unrest. discouraged by the anti-americanism, seen throughout broader islamic world and mood of come home america. let's mend our own problems and heal our own wounds for a while. that is understandable and partly i think right, if we take it too far we can get ourselves into trouble. governor romney arguing not for just more military spending but more effective foreign aid. better coordinated. arguing for a word dare i say sounds like nation-building. places like libya where he wants to do more to help countries get on their feet after revolutions before they have been thr
that is abandoned by the obama administration and it is important to support our allies like israel and support the opposition in syria and obviously touch on the libyan issue with regard to the benghazi attack and the death of four americans including the death of ambassador stevens and our role in the middle east, not being an observer but an active participant . making foreign policy work for the united states. >> steve: you will see the next debate on foreign policy. since the debate debacle for the president they blamed everybody. blaming mitt romney for being a liar . blamed jimm lehrer and even the guy who prepared the president. john kerry. he wants to be secretary of state and so he didn't get in the president's face. there is an item apparently the obama staff knew 10 minutes before it was all over on wednesday night that it was a debacle and convened a conference call and decided to go after romney and hit on big bird and all new ads to have a come back. >> gretchen: apparently the adpeople stayed up all might to have an adto go right away. when president obama was in hollywood . he
a huge push for electric cars. the obama administration in particular is a huge advocate for the industry, you know that, putting millions of our dollars into gm's volt. the battery operated cars are supposed to be better for the environment and sieve drivers money on gas, right? but a new study turns that completely on its head, saying electric vehicles can actually double the environmental damage than regular old cars. seems like consumers may have been getting the wrong information all wrong. here to disagree with me the director of public citizen's energy program, tyson slocombe. thanks for coming back to the show. this is all based on the norwegian university science and technology new study. you know those norwegians are very tidy. they don't want to pollute the environment. but they say global warming, potential of electric vehicle production is twice that of conventional vehicles is basically twice as bad is what they're trying to say. and number one, they say that in studies in the past they didn't consider the impact of charging the battery. that the generating of the electricit
the obama administration's policies at all. he would give us the impression he would be more tolerant of an israeli strike on iran. i personally am not convinced of that. i'm not convinced his policy wouldn't be essentially the same as president obama's, which is caution. >> indeed. eugene, michael, thank you both this afternoon. >>> next, mitt's other extreme makeover. do lies even matter in america these days? stay with us. >> governor romney showed up to deliver a performance, and he delivered a very good performance. it was completely unrooted in fact. it was completely unrooted in the positions he's taken before, and he spent 90 minutes trying to undo two years of campaigning on that stage, but he did it very well. >> are you saying that governor romney lied or was dishonest? >> yeah, i think he was dishonest, absolutely. i'm barack oba ma, and i approve i'm barack this message. oba these appliances could have been made here in america. but a company called global tech maximized profits by paying its workers next to nothing... under sweatshop conditions in china. when mitt romney
